WordPress performance tune

Sometimes you find the right plugin.

I’ve been playing with WordPress for a couple of weeks, reorganising my AdWords, AdSense, Analytics, Tag Manager, AddThis accounts into consolidated accounts. All managed through the lovely ManageWP interface.

This year I’m planning to concentrate on my Christmas in Australia site, beefing up the content and using it as a testcase SEO study. Hopefully.

I just added the W3 Total Cache plugin for WordPress. Before and after I ran a performance test through ManageWP.
Before I had a page speed grade of C.
After a grade A.
Page load time decreased from 4.63 seconds to 1.9.

Yes, dear plugin author, I’ll buy you a coffee.
